Work restarting on D8 motorway

Traffic will be affected near Zdiby until July

Renovation of a section of the road and bridge on the D8 motorway at Zdiby will resume at the beginning of March. Closures and restrictions will occur on road I/9, which joins D8 there. These measures will take place until July.

This weekend, traffic from the motorway will be transferred to Zdiby. Some lanes will be closed and traffic will be moved to the remaining lanes on one side. On Monday, March 5, work on the bridge starts.

From March 6 to 10, the left part of the bridge will be examined. Traffic under the bridge will be stopped. Later travel will be possible only in the direction from Mělník to Zdiby. Routes and detours will be marked.

The work is being done by Eurovia CS for the Road and Motorway Directorate (ŘSD ČR).

“All drivers are particularly urged to keep the posted speeds, not only for their own safety but also for our staff. We are fully aware of the fact that transport measures at both the site and the route can cause transportation complications and therefore we recommend that drivers plan their journey to Prague according to the D8’s status,” Iveta Štočková, a spokesman for Eurovia CS, said in a press release.

In the direction of Ústí nad Labem to Prague, traffic near Zdiby will be transferred to the other side of the highway. Later, it will be reversed.

On the downhill ride to Zdiby from Prague, the branch line will be removed due to road work and speed will be reduced.

In the course of the works, the surface of the motorway will be completely replaced in the given section, including loading layers. In some areas, the highway will be expanded. The bridge over the highway near Zdiby will be completely replaced. The middle dividing strip will be modified. The completion of the works is scheduled for the end of 2019.

The D8 motorway in Central and North Bohemia connects Prague through Ústí nad Labem with the German border at Petrovice and the Bundesautobahn 17 at Bad Gottleuba, leading to Dresden. It forms part of the major European route E55 and the Pan-European Corridor IV.

The first sections of the highway, running 45 km from the Prague Ring to the Lovosice junction, were opened between 1990 and 2000.
